Sanjay Singh’s bail

Sanjay Singh’s bail: The Supreme Court observed that Sanjay Singh has already been in custody for six months and asked the Attorney General to advise whether further detention of Sanjay Singh is necessary.

Over the objections of the Enforcement Directorate (ED), the Supreme Court on Tuesday passed a verdict against Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader and Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay, who was arrested by the agency in connection with the probe into the Delhi liquor scam case Singh was released on bail.

A bench headed by Justice Sanjeev Khanna granted bail to Singh after the ED said it had no objection to granting him relief. The bench, also comprising Justice Dipankar Dutta and Justice PB Varare, made it clear that it would not comment on the merits of the case.

Hearing Singh’s bail plea earlier in the day, the bench had asked Additional Solicitor General S V Raju who appeared for the agency about its stand if further detention of Singh who was arrested on October 4, 2023, is required.

When the judge returned to court after lunch, he said: “Without going into the merits of the case, I will grant bail under special circumstances.”

Singh who was represented by senior advocate A M Singhvi said the case raises important questions about the power to arrest and need for arrest in cases under Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

Nothing against Singh

Sanjay Singh’s bail: The senior counsel submitted that there was nothing against Singh except for the statements of approver which can always be improved. Seeking the court’s intervention, he submitted that there is clear violation of Section 19 of PMLA. Singh also was not a flight risk or egregious threat so as to be denied bail, he contended.

Singhvi said that Singh was not named initially in the case. He said that the only allegation on grounds of arrest and remand is of Rs 1 crore handed over two times by accused-turned-approver Dinesh Arora, a businessman. There is no corroboration by any eye witness apart from someone turning approver.

Sanjay Singh’s bail: The bench then pointed to the fact that Singh had been in custody for almost six months now and asked the Additional Solicitor General to take instructions if his continued detention is necessary.
